Back on the attack like a rabid raccoon, the Insert Coin(s) team are bringing Insert Coin(s) presents: The Darkness II at Oxford Art Factory in Sydney.
The new event series pays tribute to old school arcades, uniting geeks through games, music and art. This time, thanks to 2K Games Australia, The Darkness II will be fully playable on 10 screens ahead of release on February 10.
Graffiti artists Sprinkles and Creon, handpicked by Shannon McKinnon from Aisle6ix Industries (the man behind Secret Wars Australia) will be throwing pen and ink onto giant canvases, creating live art inspired by video games.
At just $10 for a whole night of retro and future gaming, this is pretty much the only spot to be this Thursday. DJs will spin a blend of 80s, 90s bangers, a custom 80s-style milk bar will serve alcoholic milkshakes alongside a New York-style hot dog vendor, and there will be free candy and surprises all night.
Tonnes of new and retro games on the night include pinball machines, classic arcade games – Street Fighter 2, Metal Slug X, Simpsons, King of Fighters, Wonderboy, Shinobi, Double Dragon – and loads more.
